(AllHipHop News) Somebody may get sued after a near-surprise Kanye West concert turned into a near riot.

New York’s Webster Hall plotted a late-night concert June 6 with an appearance by Kanye West, but a swelling crowd of an estimated 7,000 people caused a cancellation. The concert reveal was to make up for Governors Ball that was cancelled dude to poor weather.

Thousands of people went to 11th Street in the East Village section of New York.

“NYC is shut down…with a trillion kids that look, dress, and think like us… #GoodMusic,” he said on Twitter.
